Xcaret -Mayan for “Small Inlet”

Xcaret – (pronounced Ish-Ka-Ret) is located just south of Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan Peninsula. You cant possibly miss it! With more than 40 activities we were in for a big day. If you’re looking for one spot that has nearly everything at your fingertips then this is it. Seeing as the place is […]

I found Love in Mexico

Seeing as its Valentine’s Day & that I find myself in Mexico and my hubby is in Australia I thought I’d take the opportunity to write how the two of us met. It all happened in April 2007. I was 6 years into travelling & was at the time spending 6 months in the USA […]

Exploring Hidden Worlds

My sister Shells & her BF Lewis came for a visit which also happen to coincide with her birthday! We decided to look for something a little more adventures plus she was hoping to check out the club Coco Bongo. While searching online she found a deal for Hidden Worlds which also included tickets to the […]

Chichén Itzá a Wonder of the World

We drove North past Cancun towards Merida & followed the toll roads & signs to Chichén Itzá. Its a 3 hour drive & relatively easy to find, even with detours, small towns & extremely basic signs. After parking the car for a small fee we made our way to the front desk. It cost 177 pesos […]

Coba – an Incredible Mayan Archaeological Site.

When I heard about Mayan ruins in the jungle I knew I had to take the kids to check it out. What fun to explore & a great opportunity to learn more history not only about the Mayans way of life but their architecture as well. I wasn’t sure where it was exactly… just somewhere […]

Swim with the Turtles in Akumal

This beach deserves a post all on its own. Not only is it gorgeous but you can swim with the Green Sea Turtles & Stingrays for free! If coming from Playa its a 30 min drive on the 307 towards Tulum. You’ll see plenty of signs on the way. But its on the other side […]

Six Stunning Cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula

I wont say that these are the best in the Yucatan Peninsula as I haven’t seen the rest to make a proper comparison.. but they’re pretty damn close to perfection. Wondering what a Cenote is?? Dictionary definition: Its a deep natural well or sinkhole, formed by the collapse of surface limestone that exposes ground water […]

Tulum – No wonder the Mayans Chose this Spot!

We love the beach & we love architecture with interesting history. This is by far the most amazing place where those two aspects come together & you cant help but stand in awe. When you first arrive at the 70 pesos parking area you may be approached by someone from a little information booth. They’ll […]

Silver! Glorious Silver in Taxco!

If you’re a silver lover like me then prepare yourself.. & your bank account. You wont be able to leave without buying at least one lovely item from the approximately 300 shops all overflowing with SILVER coming in all shapes, sizes & designs. We originally intended to visit for just one day but ended up […]

Cacahuamilpa Caverns

Roughly 30 kms from Taxco on a windy mountain road you’ll come to the the main entrance for Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park. There is parking on the grass & someone will approach you & ask for payment. Im not sure if this is official as further down & closer to the ticket booth is an […]
